A great 6 room boutique hotel in Cardiff Bay run by Jonathan who is the life and soul of the place! His customer service is excellent and he is a real character! The hotel is quaint and overlooks the Millennium Centre with limited car parking and great freshly cooked breakfast! The only improvement would be installation of power / rainwater...

Jolyon was such a welcoming host, who made us feel at ease at every part of our stay. He gave great advice about the city, including what to do and where to eat. Our room was beautiful, with a comfy bed and complimentary sweets. We will be returning and recommending to friends and family!

Regular visitor to many hotels, from chains to personally owned and cannot rate this hotel enough. Great location for the Bay and easy access to City centre. Had room 6 with the terrace and certainly worth it, to sup a glass of bubbly and watch the world go by is a must. Jonathon was very welcoming and loved his customer...

Great overnight stay. Lovely host, beautiful venue and delicious breakfast. Good location between the bay and the centre, and free parking too. Close to bus routes and a supermarket around the corner.

Really enjoyed our stay in this cracking little hotel which is perfectly placed for all the attractions on the Bay and is also within reasonable distance to the main city if you want to venture further into town. Although for a weekend away there is plenty enough to keep you busy in Cardiff Bay itself. We toured the BBC Doctor...

The hotel is located directly opposite the Millenium Centre and ideal if you are visiting the Bay. They do a superb breakfast and we found them very helpful and funny! Our rooms were very clean with large bathrooms.

Found this hotel by chance and really happy that we booked it, it's an intimate boutique hotel that is cosy, warm and full of sweets 😁 The owner was helpful, entertaining and even made me a latte to take with me on the drive home. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you for the personal touches and the hospitality...

Looked for a Cardiff location to work from for three days and found Jolyon's . A real delight and so close to Millennium centre and Cardiff Bay with all the restaurants. The Hotel staff gave me a warm welcome and showed me to an immaculate room. I had good free Wi Fi service to work from. Fabulous Find will be...
